Wolverhampton Wanderers played a 1-1 drew with West Bromwich Albion on Monday, with both Fabio Silva and Mbaye Diagne scoring for their side.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s side put together a great move down the right side involving Owen Otasowie and Nelson Semedo, with Vitinha playing the full-back in with a gorgeous flick. He then laid off Silva, whose effort looped over goalkeeper Sam Johnstone.

Analysing the breakthrough at half-time, Thierry Henry joked that Silva had channelled legendary Italian striker Pippo Inzaghi.

He said at half-time on Monday Night Football: “I’m happy for the kid. I will call it a Pippo Inzaghi goal. I played with the man. Even when he doesn’t want to score, he ends up scoring a goal.

“Listen, just take it. Go on and celebrate.

“You’ve got to be there, he was there. Yes I know that (Kyle) Bartley kicked the ball on his standing foot. But like Inzaghi, he didn’t care and he went to celebrate.

“I’m happy for him.”
